The importance of teams
Team working has given us an unrivalled advantage over all other species on the planet, it has enables us to network our brain power and take advantage of collective learning to develop abilities well beyond what a solitary individual could achieve. It has also allowed us to pass on that collective knowledge to the next generation so they don’t have to relearn what we have already learnt.
Where we had a distinct advantage over our Neanderthal cousins was our ability to trade and exchange ideas with each other by living in communities. Whilst a much older species than Homo Sapiens the Neanderthals were not very sociable and didn’t possess the team working skills we have and were unable to deal with the adverse global change that led to their extinction some 30,000 years ago.
